Lorenzkirche, one of many pretty churches in Nürnberg.
Saturday I headed south from Berlin to Nürnberg, something close to 4 solid hours on the train. Luckily I managed to get two seats to myself.
Unluckily, as I was checking into my hotel, I realized that I had a massive, massive headache, and no Tylenol [...]
Remember, it’s 10:00 in Laramie, a mere 9 hours after I got back to my hotel from drinking beer at Altitude Brewery. Foolishly I had three Reckonings, and the Reckoning has come.
Actually I felt fine when I got back to the hotel – 20 minutes later I was feeling terrible – [...]
I’m back in Berlin recovering from the 2011 Whiney Expatriate Blogger Meet-Up, which was held in Cologne this year.
The 2011 WEBMU was fantastic and I heartily thank our fantastic hosts for putting together a very nice program that included lots of beer, a nice tour of the city, and a lot more beer.
Last week I invited a number of my colleagues to join me in a beer garden tonight in order to celebrate the Fourth of July.
I decided to cancel the gathering because it was just plain cold and wet out. This morning there was a point when I looked out my office window and couldn’t [...]

In just a few hours I’ll be leaving the Windy City—headed back home and to meet the Cynical Queer.
My time in Chicago has been good and productive—even as damaged by an unusually severe case of jetlag. I didn’t accomplish everything on my agenda—but it was given that this was impossible. Instead I’ve made a [...]
Message Seen After Bottom's Up
Wednesday night it was late and I was having a post-dinner drink with Monsieur Namur.
We were at a very nice French restaurant located in the heart of Rotterdam, located a few short steps from my hotel. Over the course of the evening I’d started with three pre-dinner white beers, followed by two glasses of [...]
Gay Berlin is amazing.
Like any reasonable first world major city, Berlin has a vivid and vibrant gay scene that is all inclusive and diverse. If you like twinks, there are lots of twink bars; if you like Turks, there’s Gayhane night once a month at SO36; and if you like punishment, well, there’s a [...]
